evening and were looking to the south, this was probably hard to miss. a massive dust storm devouring the valley. it came in from the southwest and quickly overtook the east valley as well as parts of phoenix. >> yeah, that was quite a sight to watch, and then the rain came behind it. this was in chandler was drivers were there out braving the wet and muddy roads in the wake of as skyfox moved overhead, we could still see planes landing and taking off at sky harbor airport, and the question was, did our dusty weather have any impact on travel? >> we went out to the airport to talk to travelers there, and fox 10's marcy jones is live with how weather caused problems for a few passengers there. >> as you can see next to me, the pickup line is moving along nicely now.
checkout earlier at 9:00 that were going in to pick up people coming out just now. they are still waiting for delayed, diverted planes to come on in, but as of now everything is moving smoothly. the dust storm advisory expired about three hours ago, but at one point during the height of it visibility reduced to a quarter mile, blanketing east valley cities of tempe, chandler, mesa, gilbert and we are told by folks at the airport that from 6:08 to 6:23, no flights were coming in or out of sky harbor, with some flights being diverted to las vegas or tuscon. we spoke to a very patient husband who is waiting for his traveling wife who said that he had been waiting for her for almost three hours. >> well, she was supposed to have landed at like 5:42 from charlotte, but it got diverted because of the dust storm and
just landed, finally. >> reporter: so you have been here since 5:42? >> i have been, yes. >> reporter: jeez. that's a long time to wait. how did you keep busy? >> i didn't. >> reporter: got to respect his honesty. a little bit earlier, my photographer and i were driving through parts of tempe and mesa, and it was just coming down like cats and dogs, but here at sky harbor they say it wasn't so much the rain. it was really that thick blanket of dust, and it's just too hard for some pilots did take precautions, divert and delay those flights, but everything is back up and running smoothly. reporting live, marcy jones, fox 10 news. marcy, thanks. and sometimes the issue is not that they can't land right away. it's that they kind of circle waiting to see if that dust will move through, and so they need to go refuel, so they head down to tuscon to do that. >> that's part of it too, but i was on a plane that actually had
they shifted around so much, a head wind or a tail wind. we came in and took right back off, hung around the west valley until it cleared up, better safe than sorry. >> absolutely, i wouldn't be complaining too much. that is for sure. big question of course is what's next. >> yeah, what do we have in the coming days? let's check in with kristy siefkin with a look at what to expect and if there are anymore storms on the horizon. >> well, guys, it started to quiet down a little bit tonight. we are still activity in southeastern arizona. that's dissipated and still a few showers throughout northern arizona. still activity throughout the valley though. take a look at our earlier time-lapse, you'll notice right now quiet through tuscon but pretty strong cells tracking through the northeast. around dinnertime we had a very strong cell moving through the connection at 101 and 202. otherwise we stay pretty dry. it was the big wall of dust that was the major weather event.
heavy poke of rain north of show low, just east of flag a little bit of activity north of 40, and then into northwestern arizona still seeing some showers. this moisture though spilling from the north to the sous south, a little bit of different weather pattern today. along with the wall of rain and dust, gusts of wind, 35 miles an hour near sky harbor, 40 near casa grande. makes sense since we saw all of arizona into the central deserts, and we will see more parent changes, i should say, and more about that coming up in just a few minutes. and viewers have been sharing great pictures of the storm on our facebook page. we actually shared this one on our fox 10 facebook page. this was at sky harbor airport as you can tell at the height of the storm, just about to roll over the airport. a great photo there from dennis.
at tempe town lake. that is incredible. they were out there apparently going fishing and the comment said, probably not the best day to go fishing out at tempe town lake. here's a photo taken earlier, and you can see that dust rolling right over the mountains there. >> people got phenomenal pictures today. >> yeah, they really did, picking up a lot of the dust there on the ground. and here's one from casa grande that shows the roads about to get blanketed by all of that dust. we have got a couple more to show you, this from one amber lee bailey says when the dust meets the crowd. >> that is spectacular, wow. >> and none of these photos that we are getting are filtered. these are all the real deal here. here's another one from i-10, and boy, those drivers about to get hit pretty hard by that, and the final one to show you, dust over south hope mountain high

some cell phone footage, most likely either of the incident before it occurred or after it occurred, that will lend some evidence and some credence to what we are looking into so that we can help identify this suspect or suspects and get them off the street. >> if you have any information, you are asked to call police or silent witness. a rescue off papago mountain this afternoon, and the victim, a 41-year-old man, had been crying out for help there for two hours before someone heard him, and it was a hot day out this guy is pretty lucky to be found. phoenix fire says the man was free climbing and fell into a crevice. he was alone, couldn't get out, did not have a cell phone. he was stuck there for hours screaming for help before someone close by finally helped him. a basket was sent down in a steep angle rescue. firefighters say they don't have
the mountain, use bolts and repel down. they gave the man i.v. fluids and took him to the nearest emergency room. one little goodyear girl got the chance to be a firefighter for a day, all part of her bucket list of things to see before she loses sight. 6-year-old kaylee suffers from a rare disease that affects her eyes. she could lose the near future, so her family is taking her out to see as much as they can. today she got to be an honorary firefighter. >> just excited and happy that someone in our own community would include kaylee and ask if she would be happy to come down and see all of the fire trucks. goodyear firefighter jason richmond says he saw kaylee's story on fox 10. he said he knew he had to do something for the optimistic,

fox 10 news is back. six scientists are close to wrapping up a year of isolation on a mountain in hawaii. >> yeah, and the scientists went through the year with limited resources to try and simulate the conditions that they would experience if they were living on mars. >> they simulated the conditions in mars so that meant that the scientists could only go outside in space suits. they didn't have access to fresh produce and other food not available in space. they endured all of t conducting their research. previous simulations have lasted anywhere from four to eight months. fortunately for them, the simulation ends next week. at the box office, suicide squad finished the weekend number one for a third straigh week. that makes a little more than $20 million. the comedy sausage party finished at number two, war dogs came in third, and the big
